The Bal Harbour Shops Creative Challenge is back!
We’re looking for the most promising fashion illustrators to submit a new, original illustration that captures the spirit of Bal Harbour Shops. We’ve put together a stellar panel of judges—including Jenny Kroik, Reyna Noriega and Katie Rodgers— who will select 10 finalists whose work will be featured in Bal Harbour Magazine, as well as one grand prize winner who, in addition to being published, will take home $2,500.
Please submit your high-res jpeg entry (one entry per person, please) by July 29 using the portal below, and share your entry on IG by tagging it #BHSCreative.
Bal Harbour Magazine has been a longtime champion of fashion illustration, featuring the work of established and rising talent alike including David Downton, Donald Robertson, Jean Philippe Delhomme, Ruben Toledo, Kelly Beeman, Jenny Walton, Cara Deming Butler and many more. We launched the Creative Challenge last year as a means of further expanding our support of this genre and its creators.
We are accepting one submission per person and will select our top 10 submissions to be reviewed by our panel of judges. From those finalists, one winner will be selected to be featured in the Fall Issue and take home $2,500.
